CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Brittany Roundtree knocked down six 3-pointers en route to 22 points and Krista Gross grabbed 15 rebounds as North Carolina defeated No. 25 Georgetown 63-48 Wednesday.

Megan Buckland added 13 points for the Tar Heels, who improve to 7-0 in the Preseason WNIT after winning the tournament in 2008.

Despite holding the Hoyas to 20.5 percent (8 of 39) shooting in the first half, UNC (3-0) led just 26-22 at intermission. But the Tar Heels opened the second half with a 10-4 run to go up 36-26, and Georgetown would not get any closer than eight the rest of the way. Roundtree scored the first five points of the run.

UNC held Georgetown (2-1) to 23.5 percent (16 of 68) from the field and outrebounded the Hoyas 53-42.

Sugar Rodgers, who entered the game averaging 28 points, finished with 22 points but shot just 6 of 24 from the field. She became the school's all-time leading scorer with 1,886 points, passing Kris Witfil (1,885).
